To specifically address consumers with information on chemicals, ECHA has today, on World Consumer Rights Day, launched the Chemicals in our life website. The website, available in 23 EU languages, provides useful information on the benefits and risks of using chemicals and explains how the EU legislation on chemicals protects us.
The website has a Trending section for topical news and is connected to ECHA’s chemicals database – the world’s largest database of its kind.
Users can also explore parts of the European Observatory for Nanomaterials. Several articles on nanomaterials related to health, the workplace and consumer products are available. Readers can navigate through a 360-degree interactive apartment, which shows where and why nanomaterials are used in our lives.
